If you say that someone has dusted himself or herself off or dusted himself or herself down, you mean that they have managed to recover from a severe problem which has affected their life.

Here are 5 great reasons for you to DUST YOURSELF OFF TODAY:

There is a Japanese proverb that says, “fall seven times, stand up eight”. As hard as it can be to rally yourself when you feel as though you’ve failed, it’s important to remember that your failures don’t define you. Those seven times you’ve fallen are not what makes up your character–it’s the fact that you stood up again that makes you who you are. LIKE THE MAN IN THE VIDEO ❤️❤️❤️

It can be really difficult to remember just how good you really have it. If you’re reading this, you likely have access to resources and tools that much of the world does not. This doesn’t mean that your suffering is meaningless or silly, just that you already have a lot to be thankful for. Try to look at the big picture of your world and not just the failure you are focusing on – over all I bet you have it good and you need to remember that 🔥 🔥 🔥

Read this book by Ekhart Tolle. He teaches that feeling terrible is due to regretting the past or fearing the future. If you focus on what you are doing right now, those things are impossible. So, read the book and stick to the here and now and you will understand it’s power 🌈🌈🌈

Albert Einstein said that, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Maybe you’ve failed at something because you’re a fish trying to climb a tree. Maybe you’ve failed for a greater purpose, or maybe this failure is showing you where you need to change. Look at it differently and maybe failure is actually what you need, what is right, what will ultimately make you 🚀🚀🚀

Sometimes you fail, sometimes you don’t get what you want, sometimes it’s not all roses – true? Once you accept that you cannot have the ups without the downs, you realise that, “this too shall pass”. When bad stuff happens to me, I like to ‘lick my wounds’ for a while and then, like the brilliant footballer, Harry Kane, I ‘GO AGAIN’. Do this too – YES, YOU 🙏 🙏 🙏

Wow, I have given my all to this little piece on ‘dusting yourself off’. I hope that I have not failed in my goal to help one person 😀 😀 😀

Have a blessed day and help someone today too!!! 🍒
